Lineage and Devotion
with Chuck Whetsell
The principles of transmission and the student/teacher relationship are introduced as a central component to advancing on the Shambhala Buddhist Path. Included is an overview of the path of devotion according to the three yanas, or vehicles, of Tibetan Buddhism; and an introduction to the central lineage figures of the Shambhala Buddhist tradition and the living, up-to-date nature of their life examples.
For people who are pursuing the Way of Shambhala path, this is the third of four Buddhist Studies classes that are part of the Way of Shambhala II curriculum. These four classes are requirements for attending Enlightened Society Assembly. Prerequisites are Karma and/or Lojong.
